I Spy With My Little Eye... A Spring or Easter Critter (Challenge No. 1)

Hello and welcome! 

I'm so excited to introduce a new monthly challenge taking place right here on my blog! I've had this idea for a challenge for quite some time now, I used to follow a photography challenge named "I spy" and thought it would be a cute idea for a crafting challenge. I kept putting it off as I wasn't sure I'd have the time for it, but now I decided to just "go for it". 

About the challenge:

  • There will be monthly themes starting on the 3rd Wednesday of each month and ending on Sunday before the new challenge starts. 
  • You may use any products you like, including digital stamps but the final project has to be a physical product, not just digital.
  • You may share anything handmade, it doesn't have to be a papercraft.
  • There will be a Top 2 selected from all eligible entries who will both be invited as guest designers in a future challenge. Totally optional of course as I know we all have busy lives.
  • Backlinking to a recently created project will be allowed. 
  • You may enter up to 5 different projects per challenge.
  • Please be sure to leave a link back here to this blog in your blog post.

So here we are with challenge no. 1

I spy with my little eye....

A Spring or Easter Critter!

I can't wait to see what you will make and share with this theme in mind! I will be along to visit all your wonderful entries.

Today I am also introducing the first guest designer so be sure to scroll down to see her fabulous creation!

Here is my card:

I used Penny Black stamp Juggling Eggs, colored with Zig Clean Color brush markers and fussy cut the bunny. I used MFT Grass and Cloud stencils with Distress inks. Butterflies were done with Penny Black's Soaring die set. Sentiment is also by Penny Black. I hand cut around it in the shape of a banner.

I'm sharing the above card with these challenges:

I'm excited to introduce the lovely Pauline as the first guest designer. So glad you accepted the invitation, Pauline!
